Fling Thing. Radio control glider model. HLG sailplane. Wingspan 56.5in, wing area 340 sq in. Plan also shows optional IC installation with a Cox .020 engine.
Quote: "Attached is a scan of the Future Flight 'Fling Thing' RC HLG. Year is about 1994, Span is 56.5”, weight about 14 oz. Wing area 340. With today’s modern micro radio equipment the weight should be quite a bit less, further reduced by the use of one of the very light weight coverings.
Model was designed as a hand launch glider but plans show how to mount a cox .020 on it. Shouldn’t be much of a problem to convert it to electric launch if desired. I expect this model will launch well using the classic 25 feet of 1/8 flat rubber and 75 feet of light towline thread.
Thanks, this is my second submission to Outerzone. It’s my favorite plans website so I’m pleased to contribute what I can. Also attached is a photo of the box showing a finished glider.
Thanks and best to you all,"

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
